Stephen Harper and the Nightmare Before Christmas
Well I finally got to screen Stephen Harper's year end interview with Global TV, and it was one of the weirdest interviews I've ever seen.
And one of the most chilling.
For there was Harper sitting in what looked like a set from A Christmas Story.
But sounding like a character out of the Nightmare Before Christmas.
For only a monster like Great Ugly Leader could talk about undermining the Canadian Pension Plan instead of strengthening it.
“Not to say we couldn’t do some more, but that’s where we’re at … The more worrisome group is a group of people who have reasonably affluent lifestyles but just don’t save. They have the opportunity to do so, so I don’t think the challenge is to raise CPP taxes on everybody. It’s to try and figure out how to get the people who need to save to do the saving they need to do.”
With a creepy smile on his face...
Even though NOT strengthening the plan could cause a tsunami of mass poverty. Leave millions of seniors living in misery, and millions of young people facing a low wage future, with no benefits, no pensions, no NOTHING.
Only a leader as rabidly ideological as he is, could put his deranged dogma before the real needs of Canadians, no nakedly and so obscenely.
And only a leader as morally corrupt, or as delusionary as he is, could now concede that the Senate scandal buck stops with him.
“Obviously I wasn’t told the full story and … to be frank, I’ve had a range of emotions about that. You know, anger, betrayal, disrespect, you name it, disappointment,” Harper said. “But in the end, when you have these kinds of situations, as a leader you have to take responsibility.”
But STILL blame Nigel.
“What’s so troubling about Mr. Wright’s decision is the decision was a decision he made without authority and he made it in secret,” he said. “So you ask yourself, how could a guy who’s so smart and generally so respectful of the rules, so high performing, how could he do something that’s so obviously wrong and not realize it? I don’t know the answer to that, but sometimes good people do bad things.”
When in fact bad people like the Cons do bad things all the time. He should know...
And so tortured and imaginary is Great Desperate Leader's ever evolving story, I think he really does deserve a semi imaginary interview.
AC: So the agreement for which you gave your approval was just for Duffy to pay back his own expenses: something that would require neither an agreement nor your approval? Moreover, having lied to you about it, Wright then lied to the others when he said you’d signed off on the actual agreement they’d negotiated? And when he later told your spokesman, “the prime minister knows, in broad terms only, that I personally assisted Duffy,” he was lying then, too?
PM: What can I say? Sometimes good people do bad things. But, you know, as a leader you have to take responsibility. The prime minister is always responsible. I mean, the bottom line is that the buck stops with me.
AC: I see. And in what sense have you taken personal responsibility for this?
PM: In the sense that I have singled out others for blame. Mr. Wright, in particular.
And all I can say is that Lord Liar should save that absurd confection, and his creepy smile, for the JUDGE.
Because when even Andrew Coyne can see through the smoke Harper blows out of every orifice, and Great Leader is now a parody of himself, the stuff of satire, you know the end cannot be far off eh?
He will not escape the Senate scandal...
He will not escape Mike Duffy.
He cannot escape himself.
The horror that is Harper...
Him and his foul Con regime are our nightmare before and after Christmas.
But their time is running out. Their evil has been exposed.
We're going to kick at the darkness until it bleeds daylight.
And our long nightmare will soon be OVER...
